Therapy Review:

Active Release Therapy 

 

Many of our patients just want us to do whatever it takes to fix them and would prefer not to be troubled with the details.

As much as we are happy to help them we do think that there's value in understanding what we are trying to accomplish with each particular treatment session and how each procedure fits into their overall recovery plan.

Tendonopathies generally
